Quite simply the best tea room we have ever encountered. We had delicious scones, wonderful carrot cake and scrumptious sandwiches. We will be back soon.

small talk has to be my favorite place to visit in perth, with the quaint setting of almost being in Victoria Britain to the very friendly service. The food at small talk I believe is all home made and the taste is amazing. I have visited quite a few times and always have Effies afternoon tea which is great value for money. Everything is brought to the table on vintage tea stands, with beautiful floral tea cups and saucers. Now down the the food, one thing I have to recommend on any visit to small talk is the carrot cake I am not usually a fan of carrot cake but cannot leave the place without having a piece probably the best in town.

We stopped to eat in Perth on our way to Inverness. We were lucky enough to happen upon Small Talk, a lovely restaurant and tea room. Even though the kitchen staff was about to leave, they allowed us to order a full tea, meal, sandwiches, toast with homemade butter and jam, delicious scones and cakes. The proprietors were friendly and welcoming and the food and tea were delicious. It was so good that on our way back from Inverness we went out of our way to stop there again. I highly recommend it. My husband and teenaged kids loved it as well.

Entering the "Small talk" in Perth is like entering another world. You are leaving the business of High Street and immediately welcomed by the soothing calm of the traditional tea room. The atmosphere is excellent and goes perfectly with the food and the interior. Staff is extremely nice (we were even accepted after hours) and welcoming. On top of this, the tea and particularly the homemade scones with jam, butter and cream are simply delicious! We will be there again!
